    Barak Obama and the 2nd amendment

    Poster's note: My sister in law works for ATF (yes, the branch of the federal government that regulates alcohol, tobacco, and firearms).

    She is well known around GA within the community of firearm shop owners. The below letter came from one of the gun-shop owners her in GA.

    Fellow Sportsman,
    Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association.
    I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obama’s attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone.
    The truth be told, in all my years in
    the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than Barack Obama.
    Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners and forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month.
    Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.
    Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner?
    And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger - a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And let’s not forget Obama’s pal George Soros - the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UN’s international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.
    Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other people’s money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.
    Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a “friend” of the law-abiding gun owner?
    By now, I’m sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called “American Hunters and Shooters Association(AHSA)” talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear - everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash.
    The AHSA is headed by a group
    of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be.
    In closing, I’d like to remind you that I’m a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nation’s outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants - so long as people are willing to give it to him.
    That’s the Barack Obama I know.
    Sincerely,
    (original signed)

    Ga-hvac-tech. Permission to C&P this letter in my local lib-ridden newspaper blog? I'd sure appreciate it.
    No reserve. No retreat. No regrets.

    For those who have fought for it, freedom has a sweetness the protected will never know.

    Back in the fall after 9/11 (fall of 2001), I went to the office in the county I live in to renew my CCP permit (concealed carry).

    I was making idle conversation with the clerk there, she told me that they were processing an average of 300 applications a week. Note that this is NOT a typo, 300 per week.

    I think there would be a bit of a fight in GA also... Especially since the only liberals in this state are in one large city... And it appears most of the resident in the suburbs are probably more stubborn and conservative than the folks out in the country.

    We can already see who's gonna win.
    After Nov. 4th, it's high time for us (the South) to finish what we started. It's time to suceed from the union once again. We've been suppressed since that time anyway. The only problem now, is that the South has been infiltrated with so many yankees now. Because "they like it here"!

    Which I don't agree with either. Why should I have to pay $10 a year for a right I was born with? Make the felons pay $10 a year for not being able to pack.

    Perhaps you should have read the instructions before calling.
